Memantine Medication Information

Medication Information: In Alzheimer's disease, the brain shrinks. Small deposits called plaques form all over the brain. The cause of such changes in the brain and how these plaques cause mental illness has not yet been revealed.

Memantine can not cure Alzheimer's disease, but it can reduce the progression and spread of mental symptoms in some patients. Memantine reduces a chemical in the brain called glutamate. This mechanism appears to reduce the damage to brain cells in Alzheimer's disease.

Memantine is prescribed for patients with moderate Alzheimer's (although those who have not responded to other prescription drugs) and for patients with severe Alzheimer's. Memantine is only prescribed for patients who have a nurse and can take the medicine on time. If you are caring for an Alzheimer's person, read this page on behalf of someone with Alzheimer's.
